Every Season Is Allergy Season In North Texas

Austin County Extension

Our wellness commentator, Velvete Womack, discusses the effects of allergies, which will likely be more prevalent as fall arrives. But smoke drifting from the California wildfires have caused considerable allergy trouble in Northeast Texas in recent days.  A Mayo Clinic article says, "Allergies occur when your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn't."  Velvete says nasal sprays or netipot may be helpful in fighting the effects of allergies.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
